Depends on whose version of history you accept, but, roughly, 124 years, 1326 to 1450.

2) Which country makes Panama hats?


Ain't got a clue, but i'm bettin' it ain't Panama--right?

3) From which animal do we get catgut?


Once again, i'm clueless--and, once again, i'm bettin' it ain't from cats.

Quote:
4) In which month do Russians celebrate the October Revolution?


November.

5) What is a camel's hair brush made of?


See my responses to numbers 2 & 3, above.

Quote:
6) The Canary Islands in the Pacific are named after what animal?


The easy answer is that the Canaries aren't in the Pacific. Overlooking that error, though, they are named for the wild dogs which Roman traders found when they discovered the islands. The birds were subsequent named for the islands.

7) What was King George VI's first name?


That's too easy a way to make a riddle--almost no members of the Saxe-
Gotha-Coburg dynasty (the "Windsors") have taken their own first name as their regal title. Elizabeht is an exception, and, possible, so will be Charles. Lessee--it wasn't George, right?

Found this on-line, dinja, Boss. These aren't real riddles, just someone taking advantage of trivial anomolies. Cute, though.

Okay, Setanta - posted it perhaps in the wrong category.
So it are trivial anomolies.

But nevertheless, excellent response! Exclamation

1) How long did the Hundred Years War last? *116 years
2) Which country makes Panama hats? *Ecuador
3) From which animal do we get cat gut? *Sheep and Horses
4) In which month do Russians celebrate the October
Revolution? *November
5) What is a camel's hair brush made of? *Squirrel fur
6) The Canary Islands in the Pacific are named after what
animal? *Dogs
7) What was King George VI's first name? *Albert
8) What color is a purple finch? *Crimson
9) Where are Chinese gooseberries from? *New Zealand

That are the answers from the online 'source' - I think, they are correct.

Indeed it was fun, and I actually knew that the Hundred Years War was 116 years, but only because I just heard that somewhere a day or so ago. Now, if you had asked the question in another 24 hours, the information would no longer be in my head.
